ICAP Next Generation internships are open to current students at Columbia University Medical Center.
The Next Generation interns spend two to six months engaged in the design, implementation and/or evaluation of
ICAP-supported programs in Africa, Asia and New York under the mentorship of ICAP staff. Students will learn about health care delivery systems in low-resource settings while working on a discrete programmatic project with ICAP team members.

ICAP’s Next Generation Program is a multidisciplinary training initiative that provides hands-on internships in global health to students enrolled in a variety of academic programs including public health, medicine, nursing, dentistry, social work, and business at Columbia University and at other institutions.
“My experience with ICAP highlighted skills that will be invaluable as a global health professional. I plan on taking a class in the fall about health systems to build on my experience working with the Ministry of Health in Mozambique. My time in Mozambique also helped me improve my Portuguese language skills in a health setting.”

“What I have enjoyed most about my ICAP internship has been the variety of work with which I’ve been able to assist. I am getting a comprehensive view of research and program implementation, including pre-study activities, monitoring and evaluation, data analysis, and reporting. I have been able to see how the various stages of research fit together and how results and lessons from one can stage both retrospectively and prospectively impact and inform others.”
